Greg VdB: Even neglecting the score of posts about the shameful copying of someone else's work, this garnered significantly more comments than regular portfolio posts. Which underlines the quality of the original work by Joel Robinson!

Now, DPR, give credit where credit is due.

"Big organisations" repackage, redresss their mess to make you believe that if they get hurt the world would crumble before our eyes and life in universe would end.

oselimg: His camera is made of cheap plastic Canon and DR is way behind Sony sensors there fore I don't like the pictures. This also doesn't allow me to repeat how great my mirrorless camera is.

@clicstudio...Hi, you must be new to these forums. I was being sarcastic.

@Lassoni... I give them the credit in the amount of errmmm.. 0.5

And what do Dpreview think about "artful" insults taking place in forums? The humour in these comments doesn't pass elementary level either.

"His advice to young documentary photographers is, predictably, not technical: “You should have a good knowledge of history, of geopolitics, of sociology and anthropology to understand the society that we’re part of and to understand yourself and where you’re from in order to make choices.

@Lanski...Subject of my comment is not particularly 5Ds/r nor the point I'm trying to make.

Raist3d: Amazing how many people are still so attached in their identity to a brand. This is simple- Canon sensors are behind Sony's in dynamic range. That doesn't mean your Canon camera (if you have one) stopped working. It does mean for those looking for a camera, that's one thing to weight against the Canon vs the Canon advantages it may or may not have over what they are considering.

Pick what works for you. All cameras are good now. DR is not a Canon advantage- just put it as a cons in your list vs the Canon pros and make your choices accordingly. If the Canon in the end works pick that. If it doesn't, pick something else. If you already have one and love the glass, get out and shoot.

There's no need to have a heart attack for the performance of a product of a capitalist company.

I think the responses should be directed to Dpreview who keeps feeding gearlover's fetish to get more clicks for their websites which is a capitalist company also ;-)

On article Nikon offers AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm F2.8-4E ED VR (334 comments in total)
In reply to:

oselimg: Ok, it has f2.8-4, credit given where it's due. This is an "enthusiast" lens not a main stream one therefore $1060 ok. However it's only 1/2 stop faster at the wide end and 1 stop at the long end compared to mainstream alternatives which in most cases is not significant. No wedding photographer will dare shooting with f4 at the longer end. if it had f2.8 throughout it would have made sense especially at the long end and even slightly bigger premium would've been justified if it were, performance wise, the "jack of all trades". With todays sensor performances I think the target audience wouldn't hesitate increasing the ISO one step instead of paying $$$ premium. 7 blades aperture is another Achilles heel for this zoom.

@eblison.. I agree with the points you raise regarding technical difficulties of designing f2.8 zoom lens and weight. But your comment still begs the question that who this lens is for and will they pay the premium for the aperture difference.

On article Otus Readings: the Zeiss 85 F1.4 Otus Comparison (224 comments in total)
In reply to:

DStudio: The Nikon 85/1.8G looks more 3D than the others. But the OTUS does hold an advantage on hair and bristles. And this Canon sensor gets the most out of it when it comes to detail.

The Canon 85/1.8 is a classic example of how they drive you to L glass - by producing under-performing entry and mid-range lenses (although thankfully, they're slowly improving that situation).

I think the 85/1.8G is the easy choice for most uses. Plus, it has auto focus!

Canon 85mm f1.8 is such an old design which makes it even more remarkable that it can cope with the demands from a 50mp sensor.

oselimg: Once again the self righteous gear lovers are in the business wishing Canon vanished from the face of the earth. First of all camera buying people aren't aware that you exist. Secondly if canon or Nikon were go out of business you would pay double the amount of what you pay your favourite camera. Thirdly EF lenses would double in value so you lose again. Be careful what you wish for.

@Rishi Sanyal...You've deleted your previous comment from yesterday but your current one is also loaded. You think not every Canon purchase is an informed one but other brand purchases are?

In reply to:

photo_rb: I take a bit of issue with the comment that this was caused by man-made construction. Perhaps, but it is easy and popular to automatically blame any tragedy like this on man.
A few sites I visited did not come to that conclusion. From what I read, there were a combination of factors, primarily calm weather being responsible for low oxygen levels.

@Richard Schumer...I re-phrase my exaggerated expression as "500 thousand documented death since 2003". I must have added the casualties from the "Desert Storm". We can now take a sigh of relief can't we?

I wish you could be as sceptical about the "research" as you are towards what the local people's claim. For example "weapons of mass distraction" in Saddam's Iraq was a "fact" produced by very prominent people that caused death of millions and tragedy in the nearby region.

On article Week in Review: Sony FTW (302 comments in total)
In reply to:

oselimg: I don't think that Sony hopes to sell this camera with bucketloads. This to me is more like a PR exercise by the company saying that "we can do it" therefore establishing themselves in the mirrorless market while the others will try to catch-up. I don't think full frame mirrorless is ready to take over the pro market yet though we mustn't overlook the advantages of being there before everybody else and stealing the headlines. Being there first never paid off for the mighty Kodak but Sony in my opinion have established formidable technological base to challenge Canon and Nikon. It will be interesting to see how the established brands will react to mirrorless advance. This is just my humble observation neither an effort to bash or hype any brand. If you must please respond with your opinions and/or your observations even speculations rather than adolescent trolls.

@MrIprovement...With all due respect, I would have to argue that Subaru have a lot of reasons to deserve praise not just because of their top of the range cars but also for the entry level ones because they spend the money where it matters on the their cars rather than for gimmicks. I'd owned an Impreza and a Legacy :-)

And Canon haters live happily ever after... :-))) I wonder if people are as eager to challenge the corrupt political establishment as they strongly "oppose" a certain brand?

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: Honestly,

I would have to argue that the T6i has better high ISO performance than the Nikon D5500 right through to ISO 12,800. I understand its dynamic range is less. However, if you aren’t planning on editing these files, which is the case for the majority of rebel users, then good high ISO performance would be more important than high dynamic range.

Of course people take it seriously if Dpreview said something positive about their favourite brand but think it's generous if it's about the brand they hate. Laughable.
